Nomzamo High School Borehole installation complete.

The need for a borehole came to light at a Nomzamo High School Support-Hub meeting where the continuous shortage of water for their ablution facilities was raised. The Nomzamo Borehole project was introduced to Afrimat Bulk Commodities in March 2022, as a request from Strong Schools to assist the Nomzamo High School with water for ablution services.

Afrimat agreed to fund the installation of a borehole, with all necessary pumps and plumbing, as well as electrical plumbing alterations. Moreover, Afrimat project managed the project in collaboration with Strong Schools and made sure qualified service providers were appointed for the project. 

“The company, motivated by our goal to continue adding value in communities where we operate, aligned our CSI to support the Sustainable Development Goals for ensuring access to water and sanitation, and allowing for more opportunities to better education for upward socio-economic mobility and escaping poverty. The project is one of the numerous ways we put people at the centre of all community development initiatives and thereby support the process of unlocking the talent of youth through learning and development.”
